    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I don't know if I would find another one or not. I would think I would try to but there's a lid for every pot and I found my lid! LOL - he was never married and had no kids and is a lot like his father - he lets me run the household and we do "our" jobs, like he takes care of the cars and outside and me, the bills/finances and the inside of the house. heehee. It would be hard to train another one. We are going on 12 years this April and I think our first year was the best (we had just met and were dating) then the 2nd was hard as he went off to Iraq for 9 months. We've had our ups and downs but stuck through it and not a lot of guys would have. Oh well. Who knows but for now, things and life are good!

    I will never understand women who arrange for their husband to pair with their best friend in the event that they should pass. Nor will I understand the men and the best friends that go along with it!

    Staying out of this one.
    Still snowing hard. I asked if we would likely have school tomorrow on the Boston channel weather chat and the meteorologist said no, but I should do my homework just in case. He thought I was a student.

I cannot be someone's cook and housekeeper, unless that's just what I happen to be in the mood to do that day.
    I, too, can tend to drift toward the loner side, so I don't need to have somebody around me on a regular basis. I treasure my private time.
    Shay, yes, absolutely, I am guilty of this.

    We've got about 9 new inches of snow with drifts well over a foot. It's stopped snowing for now but more is expected this evening.

    I'm three miles west of the I-95 corridor. What is the chance a storm would follow it so closely for hundreds of miles? Obviously very unlikely. When the snow recedes I hope someone looks for the snow-making machines all those weathermen planted alongside the highway, facing west. It's a conspiracy, I tell ya!

    At home, ready to spring to action with the snowblower just before it turns from heavy snow to heavy rain. Should be in a couple hours. So far a very relaxing day at home. The cats aren't whining to go out for a walk for some reason, LOL.

    My husband and I were best (platonic) friends and co-workers before we even started dating. We've been through a lot: health stuff, unemployment, etc. We've had our disagreements and blow-ups. We've been each others comforters and cheerleaders. Fortunately, we've remained childfree. We're still in love and best friends.

    OMG - I soooooo don't feel like shoveling, but I've decided to do a couple of shots of tequila and just bundle up and DO IT! If we do have school tomorrow, I need to be able to get out.

    An answer from me - probably the longest-married person on this board. Hubby and I will celebrate (and I mean that sincerely) 50 years in August. It took about 13 years before I accepted the fact that I deserved this wonderful guy. Once that happened, things just kept getting better and better.

    I know this sounds just awful to say, but I'm a better wife than I ever was a mother. If I had it to do over again, I'm not sure I'd choose motherhood. I love my kids and grandkids, but I feel like I was just an awful mother. I was too messed up emotionally to be a good mother. Maybe if I'd waited about 20 years to have them, things would be different.
